Our 2018 highlights

Posted by , on 20 December 2018

2018 was a fun year on the Node, with a continued diversity of posts, more jobs than ever and our highest number of readers since our launch (regularly breaking the 30k page views per month barrier). Good vibes, and a good time to celebrate our most-read from the year, which includes three posts on statistics and data visualisation by Joachim Goedhart, a cover competition and a group ‘op-ed’ about the advantages of preprints.
